Re: Three dongle - 3g connects 4g doesn't

A bit like DSLStats that a lot of us used. I think some still do.

I've got three different Android apps on my phone. Each supplying a slightly different combination of facilities.

Is that just a screenshot of a website picture, or something from yours?

Amazon was their usual helpful selves and have decided to replace the dongle to see if that solves the problem at no cost to myself.

Have discovered the o2 SIM is an Ipad SIM so it is proving difficult to top up to test.

Shame they care! EE and Vodafone do not, and I have a voice Vodafone SIM in my iPad.

The screenshot shows good signal levels, an RSRP of -100 of often typical indoors, which network was that with?

Screen shot is with EE who are rolling out 5G in my area. I have called o2 and they are sending me the correct SIM as you can only top up an Ipad SIM on an Ipad.

You will never get 5G on a USB dongle.

O2's own internal limitations are hilarious.

Wait until they merge with VM! If they are allowed to.

A bit like a dog chasing its tail is possible.

I know 5G wont be available for a dongle but it bodes well for 4G capacity hopefully.

o2 have sent me a 3gb loaded sim, I think. That's what it says on the front.

Looks like this is the best speed I will get.
